A little bit of art.

I made this for a private trade . . . it's a 4x4 collage, featuring one of my favorite Anne Sexton quotes. The piece had to feature a quote re: art or creativity. I wanted to keep it, but it went to my friend Mireya in Florida.

It is acrylic paint over vintage book pages and a Belgian cookie wrapper. There's also an old flash card for the word "palpation" in the mix, too. Rubber stamping, prismacolor pencil and gold embossing powder, too. There is an overlay of clear transparency that's been colored with alcohol inks.

And I've been liking the effect of using staples on a piece like their post-operative stitches on a scar . . . i don't like that it makes the back of the artwork all snaggy, but the front looks kinda neat.
